A sneak peek at OTTOBRE Summer issue 3/2009
Fashion involves a lot more than just clothes and accessories. Hairstyling is can be great fun, and children too regard it as an important part of their overall appearance. Little girls love to play hairdressers, brushing each other’s hair and attaching hairpins and ribbons – just like in a real hair salon. Boys want to have a dab of gel on their hair to be able to twist it up in David Beckham style.
Lovely hair decorations for special occasions can be quickly and easily created from leftover dress fabric. We cut out butterflies and flowers from patterned fabric and ironed pieces of double-sided fusible web (Vlieseline® Vliesofix) onto their reverse side. After that we fused pieces cut from a more subdued area of the fabric to the reverse side. And then we just cut the shapes out along their outlines and attached them to the children’s hair with hairpins.
